escar Europe 2017, which takes place on November 7 and 8, is the event for anyone concerned about automotive cybersecurity. The conference venue is the nhow Music and Lifestyle Hotel in Berlin. The world’s leading automotive cyber security conference gives researchers, security experts, and auto industry representatives an opportunity to discuss the future of automotive security.
Ransomware is one of the many exciting topics. Companies and public services are not the only victims targeted by online blackmailers: connected vehicles are also a potential target.

At escar Europe, ESCRYPT will demonstrate how, already today, cars can be hijacked by blackmail trojans – and what effective measures exist to protect against such attacks.
